Finally finished reading the "The Fabulous Sylvester" by Joshua Gamson. Hard to believe it was written by an academic. I’m sorry but people in the academy usually write so dry its dullardsville. Gamson really captured the flavour of the period, and I thought I knew a lot about Sylvester, but I sure didn’t know he was party of a tranny gang, that came out of South Central.
Got a sweet letter from one of my old 1980s runaround Sue buddies, who I recently reconnected with at my Kunsthaus museum show in Bregenz, Austria. Yes, the one and only Taxi Derma also known as Princess Gloria Von Thurn und Taxis. I know its hard to believe that I use to hang with European royalty, but honey when you’ve lived as long as I have, anything and everything is possible, and back in the old punk and post punk days, a lot of different worlds use to collide. So different from how it is now, where everyone and everything is so segregated.
Fyfe Dangerfield the keyboardist and singer/songwriter with the London based band Guillemots is a big fan of mine, and emugged me that he wants to do a collaboration of some kind. I’m anxious to find out just what that would entail.. .
Will keep you postada pumpkins.
